Best Types of Magic In Skulduggery Pleasant Books


The Top Ten

1 Elemental Magic

Great powers, who wouldn't want these. - IronSabbathPriest

Elemental magic is the manipulation of 4 types of matter, fire/plasma,water,earth, and air. Light and darkness might also count as well.

2 Necromancy Magic

Awesome power, but could be dangerous in the wrong hands. - IronSabbathPriest

Necromancy is raising the undead to have them do your bidding, so you can have an army of skeletons with you.

3 Energy Throwers

It's better than nothing, but there's a limit to how much you can do with this type of power. - IronSabbathPriest

Very powerful discipline, fast results, strong in combat

4 Symbol Magic

This is more like runes magic. And this is a frigging awesome power. Imagine, you're tired, press a power and everything is better. You're dirty? Press a button, hello cleanness. Someone is invading your mind? Fight back with imaginary razor-sharp thorns in with the click of a button.

Did everyone also forget this is China Sorrows' discipline? She doesn't usually fight but has been shown to be incredibly powerful and that whole attraction thing is basically mind control

Symbol, or rune magic, is using symbols to use magic, so you can write symbols of trees, stones, plates of metal, or other flat objects

Is a different type of see through tattoos

5 Wall-Walking

This falls in the same category as Adept. - IronSabbathPriest

6 Adept Magic
7 Teleportation

Its really an awesome power and as long as you've traveled around you can get yourself out of certain death, drop people in the ocean,teleport behind some one and give them an unsuspected punch and steal a lot of things

8 Bonebreaker

A pretty cool magic type, I mean, you can shatter people's bones just by touching them for heaven's sake!

Does this mean you can break through SHINgles

9 True Name

When you know your true name, you have extreme power, but you kind of loose control.

If you know your true name, you can:
-"See" and affect the magic of others
-Share magic with other people
-Learn new abilities simply by experiencing them
-Read Minds
-Repair any body damage, unless the brain is completely destroyed - IronSabbathPriest

10 Dimensional Shunter

The Contenders

11 Gist

This power is awesome - people will surely take you seriously if you have this power. Though, you need a powerful soul to do so and have to be careful how long you release it.

12 Science Magic

Well, I don't quite know what this discipline actually allows you to do, but hey, it's Clarabele, s discipline, so who gives a damn?

13 Earth Magic

It's cool to tunnel under the ground, but this magic can be used by an elemental.

Better than earth elemental magic as you can go a lot faster and travel through many more materials, with the drawback of less versatility... oh and you have to gouge out your eyes.

14 Warlock

One of the most beast powers there is

15 Sensitive

Can read your mind

16 Magiphage

Only on Magiphage but still...

17 Kineticist

Can absorb kinetic energy and turn into raw power falls under adept.
